Re: Joseph Liggin (Legans)
Joseph had a twin brother, Bennet and they both died in the Civ. War on the same day.I was mistaken about the measles and also his real last name was Wishon.Joseph married under his stepdad's name, James T. Legan, Jr. In those days, they spelled things as they pleased.Most folks were illiterate.The Legans name has over 21 spellings and someone in the family is always changing it!
Lygon,Ligon, Liggon, Liggin. Liggins,Leagans, Leagan, Leagin, Leggins, Legan, Legans, LeGan, LeGans, etc
